    Just weighed S3 New style Alloy

    for those who are interesetd in the answer to this commonly asked question, on my scales the wheel minus tyre = 11.2kg.

    I have bought a set of Team Dynamics Pro-race 1.2 for track events etc, these weighed 8.7kg on the same scales, half the price of the equivalent Oz Ultraleggera but similar weight and made in the UK.

    Would be very interesting to weigh the wheels with tyres too. I know it sounds daft, but tyre weight makes a big difference.

    I'll pop one back on the scales at the weekend with the tyre on as I will be switching back to stock after the track day.
